Two couples can sleep comfortably in one suite. In most cases the second bed is a roll away or a fold up couch. Not as nice as the King size bed.

The balcony is big enough too, but there are only 2 chairs.

The biggest problems are that there is not twice the closet space and only one small bathroom.

There will not be much privacy, but if you are close enough that you can share a small hotel room with 2 beds you should be able to get along in a suite.

We were going to share a suite with our 2 nieces last summer (21 and 14) but their mom decided to kick in the difference and they booked an interior across the hall. They spent almost all their time with us but everyone had more room, especially when dressing for formal night or cleaning up for dinner after spending all day on a beach.

Hi,
Carnival won't book 4 if there is not enough sleeping space. However, my friends and I had a Penthouse Suite on the Paradise last year. I had the sofa bed. And requested a roll away after the first night. The sofa be had no way to tuck in the sheets. I am a larger person and it was the most uncomfortable night ever. The steward wasn't sure I would like the roll away but it was better than the sofa bed that was sooo horrid.

There will only be 1 king bed and one upper and once couch bed. So one couple will have to sleep seperatly. Also there isn't always a couch and and upper it depends on the room. So you really have to look out on that. I dont think you are saving any money booking a suite becuase a suite is like double a person anyways so it would be better if you just get two balcony rooms.

I agree. And on most of the ships the partician between the balconies can be opened ty your steward. It's almost like having connecting cabins. Which they do have too. But very few.

I sure hope at least three fit in a suite because we have one friend, my sister and myself in a suite on the Inspiration in June. We couldn't get anyone else to go so we booked it.We plan on taking turns on the couch to the two beds. I figured it should work out for a five day cruise. We don't spend to much tme in the cabin. My sister takes alot of clothes. The third girl does not do her hair or where makeup so I figured the bathroom area will be ok. I am just happy going on another cruise that I will make the best of any place to lay my head down.

Yea it should be ok. An I am pretty sure on suites that there is a double sink in the bathroom so that is good.

I asked for more pillows and more cushions to make the couch softer to sleep on and they let me sign special needs forms for it so I think we will be ok. I also asked that a third chair be placed on the balcony and was promised it also. I need bilateral knee replacements at a younger age so they promised they would help get me what I needed to make it a happy and comfortable cruise. We will see in June.

3 in a suite should be fine. We had a Penthouse Suite.ots of room. Although the roll away was more comfy for sleeping than the convertable sofabed. And even with it there we had plenty of room for the 3 of us. 3 BBW's. We were on the Paradise and that ship did not have double sinks just the one. It did have a jetted tub. And a walk in closet. I loved the closet because you could be in the closet and others can still come in and out of the cabin and go in and out of the bath easily. Have an awesome time.

Huffca I sure hope this suite on the cruise we are taking on The Inspiration in June is comfortable because it also will be home to three BBW for five days. I had a suite in May on the Glory but there were only two of us in it and I found it to be a huge cabin with alot of room.

That is good that the walk in closets have a lot of room. Carnival has alot of storage in their rooms even the regular ones.

On the Paradise the Penthouse suite was very large. plenty of room for 3 BBW's. I just had a problem with the convertable bed. But after I switched to the roll away I was fine. Enjoy!
